Subject: Peyton Place for Teens
Sort of a disjointed Robert Altmanesque (well, not really) episodic little tale about teenagers growing up in a small town and facing small town problems. You know, swimming, education, stupid kids, dead dogs, the gamut. The whole movie focuses on one kid, who recently left school to take a great oppurtunity at a local market, but then has second thoughts when a lot of people want him to go back so he could finish his high school and continue on to be a vetenarian. Along the way there are MANY subplots, such as will a little kid survive after being thrown into the water, will the greasy lawyer who moved into town break up a budding relationship between two old people, and so on. Not going to change the world, but still somewhat enjoyable.

Subject: What happened to the end of this movie?
I really enjoyed this movie! That is until about 1 hour and 6 minutes into it. I downloaded the .mpeg version twice, both times, with the same results. I think the end is missing from the high quality version. I downloaded the low res. version so that I could find out how it ends.

Subject: Good Flick
Two plots going at the same time and really good fun. Robert F. McGowanOld directed "Our Gang" comedies before this.

"How "They" used to make 'em". A little on the sappy side, but totally entertaining with something for everyone. Romance for both young and old. Animals and a persnickity, little trouble maker to entertain the children and a crusty old curmudgeon for the grump among you. An old fashioned film full of meaning and values. A winner.
